A Blog devoted to progressive politics, environmental issues, LGBT issues, social justice, workers' rights, womens' rights, and, most importantly, Cats.

Regular visitors — and thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes — may have noticed, being uncommonly perspicacious, that blogging has been light in these parts.

The inhabitants of La Casa de Los Gatos experienced a sudden crisis when the (relatively strong) OTC painkillers we're on for various episodes of gimpitude quit working, while a bout of carpal tunnel syndrome and a "tennis" elbow tendonitis simultaneously decided to play havoc with the usual bodily decrepitude. Goddammit. It's not easy being a gimp. But pain can always be fixed, and indeed, the drugs are good, if incredibly powerful. Spending a couple of days as a puddle of mush will fix the most recalcitrant pain. And our woes are small indeed compared to others'.

We refer to our dear companion-in-arms, Ms. Manitoba, who has not stepped up to the blogging plate due to a death in the family. Having lost multiple family members over the past five or so years, she — while not totally incapacitated by or unexpecting of this latest — is nevertheless devastated and occupied with the wherewithal of death.

This has been a bad year all around, methinks. In the event, back to blogging, at least for me, and of Ms. Manitoba, more later, when she returns.

Wow. I've been out of touch for a week or so, and I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling with pain. Do be careful; I once had a serious bout with tendonitis in my wrists, and typing really exacerbated it. You don't want this to turn into a long-term affliction.

I'm being cautious, posting less, resting more, but thanks for your kind thoughts and words. I must drop in on your corner of the world soon.

I've been pretty unplugged from blogging the last couple of weeks myself - in transit from Germany back to Ohio - so I was taken by surprise to hear you'd been laid low. Glad to hear you're taking it easy.

Bless you, mon amie! Yes, I'm not sure when I'll be in the blogging mood again. Thanks for taking the load. Hugs and mighty kisses!
